Yes there was definitely a lot of whisker twitching and he was looking right at the table where his cage had been. Thank you for reminding me of that nice memory . There was the synchronised drinking as well. They had been out of sync for some time when Moo was failing but I think hamsters must be able to sense something when one is dying.

I just don’t want to be overrun with moths! Hope I don’t find any more.

Strangely I have noticed on both occasions that the hamster doesn’t eat them or even react to sharing their nest with the larvae and the odd moth. There is no abandoning the nest or squeaking and running away - they just seem unfazed.

With all the upheavals, it’s good that Pickle is settling into his old cage again.
I do like those fuzzbutt stack hammocks. I have one that I used for out of cage playtime but is nice that Pickle is not a chewer and so it can be left in his cage.

Thank you Coco. I don’t usually risk it until they are old and past chewing! And Pickle is only about 15 months old - but it has been fine. Nugget had one when he had his tumour and loved it. Pickle doesn’t seem too interested in it but it’s some overhead cover.

Pickle’s plaza is still in the garden. It was under snow for about a week, snow melted and then we had another 6 inches for a few days! Reckon the moths and eggs will be well and truly frozen so cleaning it and the bagged up contents should be fairly straightforward now. Although technically -8 is not as cold as a freezer so I had probably best still use disinfectant.
